Hunka Pie moves back to North Little Rock

MOVING AGAIN:  Hunka Pies Strawberry Cream Cheese Pie.

  • MOVING AGAIN: Hunka Pie's Strawberry Cream Cheese Pie.
Here he goes again. Chris Monroe has packed up shop and is heading back to North Little Rock after a year in the old location for The Hop on Cantrell Road. Where's he going? To the Starlite Diner on Military Road in North Little Rock.

This should be an interesting move. One thing that may have stymied the business Chris has brought in to Hunka Pie has been the fact that there's no place to sit and eat your pie indoors at the Cantrell Road location. There's plenty of places to sit at Starlite Diner... and hopefully Chris will bring good things to the burger menu and spark inspired creations on a menu that's been stuck in the past (but a bit high on the prices for what you get).

The new Starlite Diner/Hunka Pie opens November 10th with just pie. The full menu is slated to begin the Monday after Thanksgiving, the 28th.

UPDATE: A few more details.

*Monroe said he doesn't plan on taking the Starlite sign down anytime soon. He said he's hoping to incorporate both the Hunka Pie and Starlite brands into the business.

*The diner will be open 6 a.m.-9 a.m. Monday through Saturday and 6 a.m.-1 p.m. Sunday for breakfast only.

*In addition to the menu he offered at the Hunka Pie on Cantrell, Monroe said he's adding plate lunch specials, salads and the aforementioned breakfast.

*The Cantrell location has been closed since Halloween, but Monroe said he's currently accepting pie orders for Thanksgiving via phone (612-4754), email ( or Facebook.

UPDATE: Chris Monroe announces Hunka Pie's reopening delayed to Saturday, November 12th.

    Time for another session of Cheer & Jeers, my periodic round-up of things that are making their way into my mouth…some good, some bad…time to lay it all out there. Fortunately, looking back at my recent life in food, I’ve eaten much more good than bad…either that, or I’ve selectively blocked those bad items from my mind. Regardless, here we go: /more/
